I have recently had a bad trade experience with someone who visits Sandtroopers.com.  I do not know what his username is, because he read a post I made one day, and instead of PMing me, he emailed me.  His email address was DEEPDRILLING@aol.com, and his real name is Henry.  We agreed on a 2 for 1 trade.  I sent him a Holo Ki-Adi and a Lushros Dofine, and he was going to send me a CDR Cody.

Here is an excerpt from the email:

"Please be careful with the way you pack them. I live in a building and our mailman sometimes shoves boxes in our mailbox damaging the cards. I will pack your Cody with lots of care and I will ship on Friday as well.
 
Please, get delivery confirmation and send me the tracking numbers. I will do the same for you. That way we can both follow where the parcels are at.
 
Thanks in advance for the trade,
 
Henry"

Well, that was the last I heard from him, and my figures were sent back, with a return to sender stamp and taped on note.  I have emailed him, with no luck.  The figures are in fine shape, but I still wasted $5 for shipping.

If anyone knows who Henry (from Miami) is, please let me know.  I do have his last name, but I will withhold that unless PM's are sent to me.

Thanks for any help,
John

When is Bad really Bad?
« Reply #92 on: June 06, 2006, 01:00:52 AM »
So I am just wondering how to know when bad is really bad. Giving someone bad feedback is really damaging, but not giving bad feedback may let someone else get screwed... Here are a few points..

    1} Time; i believe packages should always be mailed within 1 week, no matter what( even death in the family, illness etc, A week is a long time.)
     2} Condition, you are supposed to get a c-8 and you get a c-7 , A one grade drop is marginally acceptable but to going from a c-9 to a c-7 is fraud.( a 2 grade diff is very noticable!)
      3}Poor packaging; there is no excuse for very poor packaging. Any idot can at least use shreded newspaper to protect those bendy cards and sharp corners.
        4}Slow or no payment; here I see no real excuse for this, Paypal is a must, but a money order is only 99 cents at any 7-eleven. Pay ! Pay ! Pay !

My conclusion - Any one of this offenses could be a negative fedback, but 2 or more must be a negative!

I have found the moderators here have been very helpful when I was having a hard time with a deal. First, if there are any questions, please ask the moderators here about the deal, they will let you know what is fair and proper. Also take a minute to talk with one of them before bad feedback is left. I dont know how many times when I first started here trading that I almost put my foot in my mouth with bad feedback, but through the help of dustrho, reconsgt, and others I was able to be patient and figure out the whole trading thing. Now dont get me wrong, negative feedback should be left when all avenues of approach have failed as it is necessary to protect other troopers, but should only be left after reasonable efforts have been made to resolve trade conflicts. Heck, communication errors can happen at any step in the process. However, once you try to ruin someone's rep. then you are telling people something about yourself too. I do believe reikirex that many of your points are valid, just contact the moderators before you leave bad feedback. That way you can be supported one hundred percent with the full backing of the sandtrooper garrisons.

You can't go by that, because what the seller thinks is a C-8 may not be what you think a C-8 should be. It's really hard to start throwing out grading scales on Star Wars toys, because it's all based on opinion and will never be factual. Point being, if you or anyone here are anal about grading scales then I would at the very least ask for pictures of the product(s) you are thinking about buying or trading for. If they don't have pictures, then move on.

And as TAMER mentioned we (staff) are here to help give anyone advice or assistance, but we do not regulate the trades here so you and everyone else should buy/sell/trade at your own risk.

When is Bad really Bad? conclusion.

Thanks for the comments on my post. I am used to doing all my buisness on E-Bay, so it is important that I understand what the people here on Sandtroopers feel.   In general I wouldnt leave negative feedback for someone unless I thought it was the absolute last resort.  I read the many posts about Darth Nasty. It seems that if people had dealt with him sooner, it would have stopped a lot of his scamming down the road. Now then, everyone deserves a 2nd chance, but not a 3rd, 4th 5th... I have only seen a few negatives so I am hopefull that everyone here is honest and responsible. I have done 4 deals now and only had one problem when a traders dog ate one of my figures, oh well I dont think dogs care much about feedback!

That is very odd.  Wicked has been a very good and reliable Trooper in the past.  I hope nothing has happened to him.  I'm sure the Mods will do their best to contact Wicked and see what's up.

I emailed and PM'd a lot.

Daggone. WE has been pretty reliable, I have done a lot of trading with him. I hope he makes good on his end of the deal. He has always been fair to me in the past.

I realize with the community that ST.com you feel like everyone here is trustworthy, but on something like this I would have taken payment first then shipped. If it was just a couple figures or a BP or something small I would have his back and send you the money but since we're talking about Koto's I will not go out on that limb as I have not seen or spoken to Glen in three weeks. I too hope nothing bad has happened to him, sorry I don't have any answers this is not like him at all at least everytime I've dealt with him.
